While the extent of the injury was never clarified, it does not appear to be more serious than initially feared, which could seriously damage Liverpool’s good progress at the start of the season.

Jota sent home

Such was the extent of the injury that Portugal has since confirmed that they left their team to return to Merseyside, meaning they will play no role in tonight’s tie with Luxembourg.
